Someday I’ll bring the world coverage from the epicenters of earthquakes; I’ll be that fool on the beach with waves lashing her legs when the hurricane makes landfall. I’ll deliver breaking news that cracks the spine of The Man, The Boss, and every Fox News bully out there. @nervesofsteel is on it, and nothing gets past her pen.”– Minerva Mae Christopoulos
Minerva, first ninth-grader on her school paper, is ready to be the next Christiane Amanpour. It’s 2013 and Twitter’s a Wild West full of misogynist trolls, bullies Minerva would love to see banned. The biggest troll of all? The hottest guy in school—Chaz, basketball phenom—and he’s doing a full-court press to get with Minerva’s best friend, Diana.
Diana wants to fit in, and the whole school seems all in with Chaz and his Hot or Not tournament. When Minerva investigates hazing allegations and tracks tweets to the scene of a kegger, she finds Diana on the fast track to his despicable “Final Four”—a game of no consent.
Should @nervesofsteel fight back with reporting like the NYT or like TMZ?
Maybe Minerva needs to serve up vigilante justice for a girl who’s feeling like a lot more than a friend.
High school in the digital age is harder than Hades, but Minerva’s got nerve to do what it takes so #truthwillout.
